Character Study – Itzak Abromovich

Published June 21, 2015 by rochellewisoff

“Itzak reminded her [Havah] of a bear cub, short and stout with black, curly hair. His beard seemed to be as unruly as the young man himself. His dark eyes shimmered like midnight stars.”

Framed Itzak

Itzak Abromovich is a cabinetmaker by trade who is also a gifted woodcarver. Because his uniquely crafted furniture is sought after by certain Kishinev aristocrats Itzak has been issued official papers granting him permission to travel beyond the boundaries of Svechka.

            He’s not only a skilled craftsman but a talented fiddler as well which endears him to Ulrich Dietrich, the pianist. Often furniture deliveries will end with an evening of music in the wealthy German professor’s mansion.

            At first meeting, Havah points out that Itzak is the embodiment of his name, pronounced in Hebrew ‘yitz-khak’ which literally translates, ‘he will laugh.’ In nearly any given situation, no matter how bleak, he can find a kernel of humor.

  • I love the character study and portrait. He is a great character and this is a very nice rendition of him. It brings out the visual with these portraits and shapes them into real people in your mind. Beautiful job.

    • Dear Suzanne,

      Just now seeing your comment on Itzak. Yes, he has a unique gift of being able to see past his own anguish to cheer a fellow sufferer.

      Thank you for the compliment on my sketch. 😀

      Shalom,

    • Dear Liz,

      I’m glad you think so. Aside from illustrations within the book being graphite, I’ve done the rest in sepia, for exactly that reason…to be reminiscent of photographs of the day.

      Thank you for coming by…always appreciated.

      Shalom,

      Rochelle
